    I Just got my KV34HS510 (it's unbelievable) and was wondering if they make a DVI cable to connect the Xbox. I know they make component, but I am using them for my HD cable box and DVD player. Is it worth using a HD input if I'm not playing HD games? Also, How do normal (not HD) games look stretched to the wide screen?

    There is not a DVI cable for the Xbox. But the component connection looks outstanding. And with the xbox, all games are at least 480p so there is an advantage to using the component connection even if they are not 720p or 1080i. You just have to decide if you would rather have your DVDs look their best, or the Xbox. Or you could get a receiver with at least two component video inputs and that would solve your problem. JVC makes a component video switcher that's not too expensive. That's another option. I have the KV32HS510 (4:3) so I don't know how stretched games would look. Hope I answered your questions.

    I ended up with a new DVD player that has DVI output. I still will end up with a component switching amp, since both PS2 and Xbox has component out plus the HD cable box.

    You might not want to waste the DVI output on the Xbox anyway since it is fairly limited (i.e. 480P and 1080i). In addition, the DVI in on the Sony will not let you do any digital changes (i.e. Wide Zoom/Full/Normal or DRC) so whatever shows up on DVI in terms of aspect ratio and format, it will show up on Sony unchangable.

    I have a KP-57WS510 with the DVI input and was just trying to play DVD's with my Samsung DVD player that has the DVI output but can only get 480p and 720p, when I try to display 1080i on the Sony I get snow. I imagine the DVD player is working correctly since I can see the 720p fine on the sony but I am wondering if there is an internal settin on the TV I have to select to display interlaced format via DVI.

    Never Mind I found a post that solves this problem, apparently my Samsung HD931 needs a firmware update to be compatible with the Sony at the 1080i signal level, complete post here:
